Sky Deutschland secures Champions League rights
December 9, 2013
Sky Deutschland has secured the extension of broadcasting rights for the UEFA Champions League in Germany for the seasons 2015/16 through 2017/18, and will show 146 matches live per season, 128 of them exclusively, from the play-offs to the final including the UEFA Super Cup. Sky Deutschland customers will be able to experience every match and every goal across all platforms live and in HD, with the choice of either individual matches or the original Sky Conference.
Carsten Schmidt, Chief Officer Sports, Advertising Sales & Internet at Sky: “The UEFA Champions League is a source of great drama and incredible stories. Memories of the final in Munich in 2012 and the German-German final in Wembley in 2013 continue to resonate with the football fans for months and years after the match. As the official TV partner in Germany, we are thrilled to continue sharing these stories on Sky.”
Sky secured the live broadcast and highlight rights across all platforms for the German market. This means that Sky customers will be able to watch the UEFA Champions League not just on their home TV set, but also with Sky Go on the Web, the iPhone or iPad via 3G or Wi-Fi and on the Xbox360.
